In an article entitled, "Durham DA may quit animal control panel", Eric Ferreri of the News and Observer details a pout of an email sent to the Durham County Animal Control Advisory Committee by a "truly dismayed" Mike Nifong who threatened to take his toys and go home. Apparently, the Governor appointed District Attorney of Durham County had his feelings hurt by his fellow board members having signed a petition in support of Lewis Cheek whose ballot spot will now serve as the preferred selection for those who support Anybody But Nifong in the November referendum on Nifong election. In a tantrum reminiscent of both his obscenity laced verbal assault on Kerry Sutton and his vindictive release of Susannah Meadows's private cell phone number and email address, Mr. Nifong whined,
"Since it is apparent that many of you do not have confidence in me, I intend to reassess the position of my office with respect to representation on the board and to inform you of my decision about whether we will continue to participate within the next two weeks."
I'm quitting! Yes, I'm quitting!
